Bagnalls operatives carried out the external painting work to the Registry Office and Tourist Information Buildings, working off a fixed scaffolding. The scaffolding was encapsulated for environmental and safety reasons, to stop any debris from falling on the public below. The duration of the works from start to finish took around 6 weeks. Works were completed using a Dulux Weathershield specification.
The windows on the side elevation above the Priory Place sign were bricked up, as this was the custom in times gone by. However, the council wanted the building to look like it did when it was originally built, so our craftsmen painter blackened out the window areas and then painted individual window panes by free hand. Full internal redecoration works were then carried out to transform several rooms inside the Mansion House to make way for the new Registry Office.
